2017 YAMAHA FZ-07


2017 YAMAHA FZ-07

The Yamaha FZ-07 came as the second bike in a one-two punch by Yamaha following the recession. It was released in 2015, a year after its big brother, the Yamaha FZ-09, and paired nimble handling and a good-performing engine.

The FZ-07 is powered by a fuel-injected 689cc crossplane parallel twin. It has a 270-degree crank, which means that the two cylinders fire at an irregular interval to better balance internal inertial forces, resulting in a more responsive and torquey “feel” similar to that of a V-twin.

Despite a fairly economical conventional fork and shock, the suspension actually works fairly well for average-size riders. Which means that, while the FZ-07 often finds a home with commuters or newer riders, it has also found a following among track enthusiasts looking for something small and economical to race.
